Beyond Charts requires the Windows environment to operate. This can be acheived on a Mac by installing Windows onto a Virtual PC (What is a Virtual PC?). Examples are Boot Camp, Parallels, VM Ware Fusion or Virtual Box. (Boot Camp is standard on post 2011 Macs, but requires you to 'boot' into Windows when the Mac starts.

We have a large number of customers successfully running Beyond Charts via all of these third party Virtual PC's. But they are third party applications, and while we will do our best to help with any issues that may arise, we cannot guarantee operation under all circumstances.
